International Day of Yoga

JOIN US FOR THE UN INTERNATIONAL DAY OF YOGA

SATURDAY - JUNE 17, 2017

 
We're ecstatic to announce that our 2017 celebration of the UN International Day of Yoga will be taking place on Saturday, JUNE 17, 2017, once again at President’s Way Lawn in Balboa Park. You and your family are warmly invited to share this special day with us, whose program will include guided yoga in addition to meditation and music meant to instill peace, and to inspire and empower people of all ages and walks of life. There are also many opportunities to get involved, either as a Vendor Yoga Teacher Musician Volunteer or even as a Sponsor so get in touch now!
The United Nations International Day of Yoga was established and observed for the first time in 2015 at United Nations Headquarters in New York and in many major cities throughout the world, and we at Pilgrimage of the Heart Yoga would like to thank you for attending our inaugural 2016 celebration!
Yoga means unity, and the celebration of San Diego’s International Day of Yoga seeks to promote a culture of peace, which is at the very heart of the practice of Yoga as well as the mission and focus of the United Nations. We had 500 yogis in attendance, 10 vendor booths and 18 breakout classes, and each and every one of you is what made this event so special. It's your contribution and involvement that strengthens the yoga community around you and spreads this sacred practice to those in need!
